Am looking over my blog, and realizing I somehow forgot to announce this earlier. D'oh! I'm going to be the keynote speaker at the upcoming Secular Student Alliance Annual Conference, being held next week in Columbus, Ohio.
You heard me right -- the freaking keynote speaker.
The conference is being held July 23-25, at Ohio State University. Registration is still available, and dorm housing is both available and super-cheap. Other speakers include Hemant Mehta of Friendly Atheist fame, Jen McCreight of Blag Hag and Boobquake fame, Skepticon host JT Eberhard, and more. I'm going to be giving the full- length, expanded disco version of my talk on What Atheists Can Learn From the LGBT Movement. Summary: The atheist movement is already modeling itself on the LGBT movement in many ways -- most obviously with its focus on coming out of the closet. What else can the atheist movement learn from the LGBT movement... both from its successes and its failures? I'll be speaking on Saturday evening, July 24, at 8:30 pm.
As the keynote speaker.
Did I mention that part?
Li'l ol' me, blogging in my pajamas.
Atheist blogging is awesome.
